Zipper Card Pouch Have you ever had too many cards that your wallet can handle? Be selective and get only those cards that you might be using in a particular shopping mall but end up they were the wrong one? Or, may be just forgot to “update” the cards in the wallet on your next trip? Can’t find the cards you thought you have already put into your wallet? Sounds familiar….. If you are nodding your head now, you need a pouch for the cards just like me. I am not a big fan of big wallet, with the increasing numbers of cards that I have, my decent size wallet is no longer able to buckle up. This zipper pouch can hold up to 30 plastic cards (similar to credit cards), and more for thinner cards, business calling card for example. Get the pattern and tutorial to sew one yourself after the jump and don’t have to struggle with the cards anymore. {Get pattern and tutorial on next page.} Pages: 1 2 Get all updates via email: Highlights from Our Partners

Cosmetic Bag - Siv Jane Aksdal's blog A first for me, I made up this little cosmetic bag and decided to try my hand at drafting a pattern for you.

If you are new to sewing I have a Sewing Tips Directory that might come in handy. Fabric requirements: A half a yard total is more than enough to make the bag body. A heavier fabric works best, like a canvas, twill, or anything that has a sturdy weight.

I know I’m not alone in finding the Container Store’s promise of a perfect, organized life utterly seductive. But here’s the thing…I don’t really like purging, I love my stuff.

The Bookkeeper This is my FIRST project for Moda Bake Shop and I'm really excited to share it with you. One of my favorite things to do besides QUILTING and CRAFTING is READING! So, for Mother's Day this year my DH bought me an Amazon Kindle. I was sooo excited to get it early and I've already read three books and I'm in the middle of two more books. I just love this new technological wonder. The BOOKKEEPER can also hold any paperback book that measures less than 9 " x 6" and isn't too thick. The BOOKKEEPER could also be used as a handy little purse or sewing pouch. I hope you enjoy this project. 1 Moda Honey Bun (I used Mary Englebreits Baskets of Flowers for tutorial.

Mod Purse Refashion, a Tutorial The mod purse refashion is officially my first project inspired by Instagram. Are you guys on IG yet? I am addicted, and its bad. I follow all of these amazing people, and see all of these amazing photographs, that at some point it was bound to happen. I got inspired. Susan of Freshly Picked is the particularly hip IGer that inspired this purse. I pretty much L-O-V-E the way this purse turned out. Its my new favorite purse. And I know this may sound hard to believe, but it was actually relatively easy to make! Let me show you what I did. First off, you will need your own thrifted leather purse. Now, time for the fabric. Once again, you find me using my children’s toys as sewing / DIY supplies. I only use the glue to secure the hardware back onto the bag initially. And there you have it, a super mod bag. I will totally be rocking this at ALT. Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time… Happy Sewing! Jess Latest posts by Jess (see all)

Receipt/ Coupon Organizer Tutorial My sister asked for a small pocket organizer to keep receipts in for Christmas. I knew I could get a basic one from an office supply store, but all that boring black plastic seemed like it needed some fancifying. After checking out some examples on the internet, this seemed like something I could handle. I think you could too, if this is something that would help keep your life both fancy and organized, so here’s how I did it. Materials: A piece of fabric cut to cover the outside of your organizer – mine was a legal size, so it was 10.5″ by 18 3/4″ (you only need to add seam allowance to the bottom edget of the fabric i.e. make your fabric piece about 1/2 inch longer than it needs to be) Wide bias tape long enough to go around the outside edges – mine was about 60″. First, turn under and sew a seam across the bottom edge of your fabric piece. Using a heavy needle on your sewing machine, stitch the bias tape to the organizer. Then, when you’re done, this is what you’ll have.

DIY - Trio Zipped Bag I have been sewing a lot lately, and didn't have time to take pictures yet! So one of the last thing I made was my sister birthday's present, a trio zipped bag! I work on the same basis as the Duo zipped bag, but I used 3 different faux leather colors to make pouches. So you will need: 3 zippers 12" / 30 cm 6 faux leather rectangles 12"x8" / 20x30 cm 12 metal eyelets2 keys rings1 chain 24" / 60 cm Cut 6 rectangles and rounded two corners, then put metal eyelets on opposite corners. To make pouches follow the steps 1 to 7 of this tutorial WITHOUT the leather strip part. Then just pass a key ring on each side of each pouch to keep all 3 together. Et voila!

Hühner-Eier oder Eier-Hühner: Was denn nun? Modellieren ist ja nicht so meins, es sei denn, ich habe eine schöne Step-by-Step-Anleitung... Vor Kurzem habe ich aber beim Bummeln in einem Laden ein Huhn gesehen, dass ich auch ohne Anleitung als Deko für meine Ostertorte nachmachen kann :-) So etwas Einfaches ist auch für mich kein Problem und ich habe gleich eine ganze Hühnerfamilie fabriziert... Für diejenigen, die so wie ich gerne nach Step-by-Step-Anleitungen vorgehen, habe ich beim Modellieren einige Bilder gemacht - aber eigentlich braucht man die nicht... Ihr braucht Modellierfondant (50% Fondant / 50% Blütenpaste) in verschiedenen Farben, einen Ausrollstab, Zuckerkleber und zwei verschiedene Lochtüllen. Aus Modellierfondant ein Ei formen und für den Kamm und die Troddeln unter dem Schnabel (wie heißen die eigentlich...?) ...und die beiden Schnabelunterteile auf das Huhn kleben. Die drei Tropfen für den Kamm mit einem kleinen Kreisausstecher oder wie ich hier mit der Rückseite einer Spritztülle kürzen.
